I had a chance to attend the BlogPaws pet blogging conference a few months ago. It was on my home turf, about 30 minutes from my house. I was excited to see what was new in the pet blogging world, especially for gluten-free cat products. As you might know, my house is a 100% gluten-free household, and that includes the fur kids. I’ve got two of them, if you don’t follow me on Instagram and see them on the regular. They’re pretty much awesome. I blogged a lot of the conference on Terrible Murph’s new Instagram account. You can either follow his account, or check out the hashtag #TerribleMurph on social media to find him.
Clearly, I was most excited just to meet some new cat friends and pet some felines.
So I kind of fell in love with this Taco Meoow Cat Bed. I entered the raffle for a giveaway, and I really had my fingers crossed for this, but I’m thankful that I won something – and especially that I won something the cats actually love. Let’s face it, I’d probably get more use out of the cat bed than they would – for SnapChat purposes.
Honestly, the cats were just excited that they had a bag full of treats just for them.
The fur babies both really liked these Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost Mixers. It’s freeze dried shelf-stable chicken-based gluten-free nuggets. They liked they dry as treats, but you can also use them on top of food as well.
Fresh Wave is a line of odor-control products that are natural, and free from super offensive odors, like many pet products. They make everything from pet shampoo, to laundry products, to candles. We used a few odor remover products in our cabinets where our garbage can is too!
I think I was most excited to hang out with Weruva! Our cats are super obsessed with their wet food. Weruva products are gluten-free and super high-end, good enough for humans to eat (but the fur kids eat it before we can even sample). They’re obsessed with the BFF line from Weruva (Best Friends Food). We’ve had many interventions, but it’s just a thing now. Every night. They meow until they get their Turkey Tickles or Tuna Charm Me (cute names, right?). We buy a LOT of this product. I am hoping to work with this company before Murphy and his never ending hunger eat me out of house and home (and electrical cords on my Macbook). When you see me rave about this product, know that it’s because it’s pretty much what we buy in bulk for our little ones. BUT SERIOUSLY, WILL WORK FOR WERUVA CAT FOOD.
Weruva also just launched a grain-free litter, and we’re excited to try it. Unfortunately, none of my cats were there to poop real time, and since I didn’t feel like pooping in the litter box provided – we’ll have to see its effectiveness when we get a product sample. Don’t worry, I’ll let Murphy take care of the product trial for me.
It’s nice to take a break from food blogging, or blogging about life-long autoimmune conditions to focus on my gluten-free family – two fur babies that are as precious to me as children. Especially since I probably should never actually procreate. One Erica is enough for the world, and perhaps one Terrible Murphy is enough too – but I’ll take advantage of every minute I get to spend with him and Mushu.
If you’re a pet blogger, next year’s BlogPaws conference will be in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina!
